  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


In a large cast-iron or non-stick skillet melt the coconut oil over medium heat.

Season the cut up chicken liberally with salt and pepper.

When the oil is good and hot add the chicken pieces, let sit untouched as they cook for 4 minutes then flip over.

Add in the diced ginger and garlic, let cook for an additional 4 minutes while you prepare the sauce.

For the sauce:

Combine the tamari and orange juice. Pour the sauce over the chicken and mix well, cook on low for about 5 more minutes until the chicken appears nicely glazed on the outside and the inside is no longer pink.

Red Cabbage

Towards the end of the chicken cook time, melt coconut oil in a smaller saute pan over medium heat.

When melted add in the cabbage, a few dashes of salt, the fresh ginger and saute for about 2 minutes until a tad wilted, but still crisp. Add a squeeze of the leftover orange from the sauce above, just to add a touch of moisture and sweetness.

Serve the Chicken over the red cabbage and Enjoy!

Awesome. I left chicken breasts whole t make t easer to know my ounces. I also cooked the cabbage in the same skillet with chicken. It was delicious. My Significant other loved it and he doesn’t usually like chicken anyway but fried in grease. He even had seconds. Will make again soon.

Awesome. I cooked the cabbage in with the chicken and used regular cabbage. I kept my chicken breasts whole as I could count my protein easier. My significant other who does not like healthy food loved it. He also loved the Apples and Brussel sprouts. He asked if we cold have this again. lol

This is wonderful. We’ve made numerous times and the whole family eats it. I do make rice for them.

Jessica, this is fantastic!! I can’t eat chicken, and could not find turkey tenders so substituted Shrimp. Even my picky husband loved it. Added some sautéed peppers and scallions to the cabbage, and served sprinkled with Black Sesame Seeds. He said it was like eating at a restaurant. Thanks for continuing to wow us with your great recipes.

I liked this a lot. I served it over sliced red cabbage. My question is can we substitute lean ground beef 97/3 for the chicken? If so how would the nutritional values change? I was thinking this could fix my Mongolian beef cravings.
